Description

The Strange Souls of the Taylor Point House.
A long time ago, Miss Teedee did something so unspeakable that she vows to do penance for the rest of her life.

A large part of Darryl died when his wife did, twenty years ago, and he knows if he keeps eying the liquor, sooner or later, he'll drown in its siren song.

Monica scrubs the Inn from top to bottom every day, but she'll never clean enough to rinse away the past she desperately wishes she could forget.

Andrew, Monica's son, knows all the names of the trees and insects in the garden, and his green thumb can make anything grow – except, he fears, the love he so desperately wants.

Mercutio tries to give the best care possible to his charge, Helen, Darryl's daughter, who can hear whispers coming from the cracks between worlds. The whispers tell her stories of gods and chaos and an imbalance which threatens the lives of every living being in every world and dimension in existence. The people of the Taylor Point House are pivotal in the fight for balance and survival, and Helen waits for the moment to act, knowing they are growing ever-closer to destruction.

Then Jason Hart arrives with a heavy load of heartbreak, and Helen knows he is the key to her quest. Together, the seven members of the Taylor Point House must buy enough time for the shadows' plan to work.

But across town, a beautiful, lost woman named Madeline is having nightmares while she's fully awake. And they're getting worse. There's something after her – something made of little girl dresses and crawling worms and a piercing shriek that won't let her sleep.

Madeline fears she's not long for our world, and she's right.

Because the last Walker of the Veil, the King of Nightmare, is coming to take her home.

An intricate ride through two worlds with a cast of humans and gods relying on one another, come join the journey to find the Star, destroy the Horrors, and save us all.

Before it's too late.

The Strange Souls of the Taylor Point House.
